Alpari, a major international forex and binary options broker with significant presence in Russia, said it is launching an investment portfolio for digital currencies – CryptA Capital. It is created and managed by experienced and competent investors with a history of creating effective financial products.
The portfolio consists of three of the most popular digital currencies right now: Bitcoin, Ether and Litecoin and its launch comes just a few days after Alpari launched Bitcoin trading on its ECN accounts.
According to Boris Shilov, chairman of Alpari’s supervisory board, the new investment product was inspired by the recent rising interest in the digital currencies. “In my opinion, we’ve already entered a new era; where cryptocurrencies have become a serious alternative to popular, more traditional financial instruments”, Shilov said.
The investment portfolio is available through the myAlpari client area.
Another forex broker, eToro, recently launched similar products in their investment CopyFunds– for Bitcoin, Ether and Ether Classic.
Alpari has offices in Russia, Belize, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, two offices in Mauritius, and the UAE. The group consists of Alpari-Broker (Russia), Alpari Ltd. (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines), Alpari International Ltd. (Mauritius), Alpari Ltd. (Belize), and Alpari Forex (Russia).
Alpari offers trading in a large number of assets, including forex, CFDs, spot metals, binary options and investment gold. The maximum leverage is 1:1000 and trading can be done on MetaTrader 4 and 5 platforms.
